As a collaborative endeavour between the African Union Commission (AUC) and IOM, the report is a reflection of both entities’ commitment to more fully harnessing the benefits of migration on the continent and effectively addressing the real drawbacks when migration is not well-managed. Some of the key AUCIOM initiatives that seek to achieve the goal of enhanced migration governance on the continent include the Joint Labour Migration Programme, the Protocol on Free Movement of Persons and the African Union Horn of Africa Initiative on Human Trafficking and Smuggling of Migrants. Further, through its growing number of offices on the continent, IOM is striving to give effect to progressive migration policies at the national level.
